Day 1400

Tuesday, November 15, 2016

Still processing everything.  Our club quarter-final and semi-final matches were held tonight.  The big match was between Ron -- the #1 seed -- and Tyrone -- the #8 seed.  Ron had improved so much in the past year and has played a few Stockton tournaments to great success.  He's slowly becoming an open player.  Had he beat Tyrone, he would have played Steve in the semis. He spent all his time focusing on Steve, forgetting that Tyrone in playoff mode was a far more difficult player than T in regular season mode.  T was ready to ambush Ron in their match, and that's exactly what happened.  It went down to the wire, with T beating Ron 15-12, 9-15, 11-8.  It was a fierce battle that lasted nearly two hours.  I had two matches to play, so I didn't get out of the club until a little before 10.  I beat George in two games, then lost to Kirk in a tie-breaker 15-12, 12-15, 8-11.  It was a good match.  Kirk gets everything.  I came home around 10:15, called Alice, then went right to bed.
